The Manhattan Center for Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy provides psychological services for adults, teens, and children affected by anxiety, depression, and other conditions. Our offices are located in midtown Manhattan. Cognitive-behavioral therapy, or CBT, focuses on ways in which your thoughts and actions can contribute to problems – and on how you can address these problems by thinking or acting a little differently.
CBT is a form of psychotherapy that has been demonstrated to be an effective means of treating problems such as depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), social anxiety, phobias, eating disorders, and panic attacks. Research studies typically show CBT to be about as effective as medication for these conditions – sometimes more effective, sometimes less. However, unlike with medication, the skills you learn in CBT stay with you after the end of treatment. For more information visit our “What Is CBT?” page or our “How to Get Started With CBT” page.
